Towns is scheduled to undergo the surgery early next week.

Upon discovering the tear via an MRI in recent days, Towns, in consultation with team physicians and specialists, swiftly committed to the procedure.

This decision offers him a chance to rehabilitate and rejoin the team during what is shaping up to be the most successful regular season in franchise history.
